Add or remove subscribers on IU List

Note:
Only list owners can perform the actions described below.

On this page:


Use the web interface

  1. Log into the campus IU List website for your list:
    Campus IU List web interface
    IU Bloomington https://list.indiana.edu/
    IUPUI https://list.iupui.edu/
    IU East https://list.iue.edu/
    IU Kokomo https://list.iuk.edu/
    IU Northwest https://list.iun.edu/
    IUPUC https://list.iupuc.edu/
    IU South Bend https://list.iusb.edu/
    IU Southeast https://list.ius.edu/
    University-wide https://list.iu.edu/
  2. Find the correct list on the left-side panel, and click Admin.
  3. Select the Manage Subscribers tab or link.

From here, a variety of options are available, including deleting users and adding users, dumping a list of users into a new window, or generating a list of pending subscriptions.

Note:
To bulk add subscribers, click Multiple add, and follow the format in the provided examples.

Some columns are selectable and will sort the subscriber display. Either the <<>> icon or Toggle Selection button can toggle the selection of all users on the page.

Use email commands

Send subscribe or unsubscribe commands to the campus IU List administrative address (list@campus.edu), as follows. You may include multiple lines, each with a different command, in a single message.

To add someone to the list:

ADD listname user@host firstname lastname

To add someone to the list without notifying the person:

QUIET ADD listname user@host firstname lastname

To remove someone from the list:

DELETE listname user@host

To remove someone from the list without notification:

QUIET DELETE listname user@host

Most lists will require you to confirm this request, by sending a confirmation code back to your original email address. It is possible to disable this confirmation in the list configuration; see the next section.

Set up automatic subscription

If you want to use processes or forms to automatically subscribe users to an IU List mailing list, you will need to manually adjust your list to allow automated processes to subscribe users without a confirmation message. This will weaken the security of your list. If you want your list to be more secure, you can add multiple subscribers at once using either of the subscription methods discussed in the previous sections.

If you want to use an automatic process, and you are not concerned about your list process being insecure, you can change the owner confirmation setting as follows:

  1. Log into the campus IU List website for your list:
    Campus IU List web interface
    IU Bloomington https://list.indiana.edu/
    IUPUI https://list.iupui.edu/
    IU East https://list.iue.edu/
    IU Kokomo https://list.iuk.edu/
    IU Northwest https://list.iun.edu/
    IUPUC https://list.iupuc.edu/
    IU South Bend https://list.iusb.edu/
    IU Southeast https://list.ius.edu/
    University-wide https://list.iu.edu/
  2. Find the correct list on the left-side panel, and click Admin.
  3. Select the Edit List Config tab or link.
  4. Select Privileges.
  5. Under "Who can add subscribers", select the owner_noconfirm option. The list will update and the window will refresh.
  6. Under "Who can delete subscribers", select the owner_noconfirm option. The list will update immediately.

You may now send automated mailings from the owner address to add or remove users from your list without confirmation, using the email commands listed in the previous section.
